Notes

For consistency, please use 'Illinois' as the title of this release, but please note that the cover art reads "Sufjan Stevens invites you to: Come on feel the ILLINOISE".

Although the title 'Illinois' is not supported by RSG §3.1.2 and RSG §3.1.3 (as several users have pointed out in the sub notes and forum), the alternative is dealing with more than one acceptable title via valid application of RSG §3.1.6 after RSG §3.1.2 and RSG §3.1.3. The resulting title would be "Come On Feel The Illinoise", which is neither the intended title nor full title. The intended title simply cannot be refuted based on legitimate external sources, and is thus the only title which can end debate and create a consensus for this Master Release. This is a relatively unique characteristic of this release.

Also, please note that the track titles vary slightly between the CD and vinyl issues for tracks 9, 11, and 17. Track 23 is a vinyl only bonus track.
